Ever consider owning your own aquarium store?
What did you conclude?
No because im too new for it.gotta have years in
I own an online store ;D but you knew that already, lol!
I have considered it, but im with Nemo on lack of experience. then again that doesnt mean you cant hire someone that does know alot about it to help run things as you learn.
I plan to.
we seriously looked into it 10 years ago. Wanted both fresh and saltwater with a few lizards and snakes tossed into the mix. Found out to o do it right it was way to expensive then! Can't imagine what it would cost now....
I have often considered it, especially when I go to LFS and get bad customer service. I think if I am getting bad service, so are others...8)
I would love to! The initial cost associated with it, and the location has to be ideal though! Then you have to hire competent, knowledgeable and conscientious help which is a hurdle to be dealt with!
i used to own one. with todays economy and other reasons im glad i dont anymore
Yes, I (we) considered it. And we even had a close friend that did. Unfortunately IMO she opened it in the wrong location and with the wrong partner. It only lasted about two years.
